Weekly Game Release Highlights, December 22-28

A Merry Christmas to all, and to all a few new releases!


'Twas the week of Christmas
And all through the house
Not a blockbuster new release was stirring
Not even...um...

Ok, so I'm not a very good poet. My English degree has failed me.

You get what I'm saying, though. There's not a lot coming this holiday week. Vita and PS3 owners will get their first crack at Resogun, while Wii U owners get a double dose of goodness with Shantae and the Pirate's Curse and the Virtual Console release of Duck Hunt. Everyone else is celebrating the holiday, so Merry Christmas, everybody!

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Sunset Overdrive is supposed to get some DLC this week on the Xbox One. I'm looking forward to that! :)

          You might have some issues with the controls -- lots of stuff happens quickly. One annoying thing about it is that it might be a fun game to play with kids over 12, but out--of-the-box it's more profane than GTA V. Fortunately, the developers have a profanity filter you can find in settings.

          I hope you enjoy it! It was one of my favorite games this year. ;)
